4.38/5 rDev +5.3%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
A: Poured a half finger white copper head that settled to a thin cap. Color is a very deep garnet hued amber color. Carbonation can be seen streaming to the top from the middle of the glass like an ocean vent. Lacing and glass presence is great lasting 45 min into the pour.
S: First I smell dark fruits prunes, currants, and plum. Followed by a yeasty breadiness and meade. Sweet syrup.
T: Waves of flavor. Apple, ripe banana, brown sugar, caramel and chocolate.
M: Velvety smooth. The burn of the 10% ABV is completely absent. Full bodied while maintaining the drinkability. I could use some more carbonation, but the smoothness here is standout.
O: Really a balanced Quad. No date on the bottle, but I would very interested to understand the aging effect on this beer. This is the way a Quad should be.

13oz draft pour at bier markt mississauga
a: deep orange/amber hue with half a finger of head
s: huge banana and vanilla up front, great stuff. hints of maraschino cherries. alcohol is present
t: a melange of bananas, maraschino cherries, and vanilla to begin with. it's sweet all around but not offensively so. nice! but what i dislike here is the alcohol presence -- it's rather strong and makes the entire tasting feel medicinal. light spice on the back-end. dry finish
m: medium body, medium carbonation
o: this beer has a lovely aroma but the flavours are all ruined by the alcohol strength
Serving type: on-tap

Summer night in Sweden with a 750 ml bottle in the garden. This is love.
Do think the big bottle has much more taste and nose
If you want this and if you are in Scandinavia do make a stop in Denmark were the price is "very low" ~ 5 USD at most supermarkets.
